A dog, believed to have been dragged by a vehicle, suffered a tragic and untimely demise in Surprise, Arizona. According to the Surprise Police Department, the severely injured pit bull mix was found at a business in the area of 13000 West Cottonwood Street on December 1.
In a release from the authorities, details of the disturbing discovery were made public:
Upon arrival, officers spoke with a one of the employees and discovered a severely injured dog had walked onto the property. The injured animal, described as a brindle colored male Pit Bull/Chinese Sharpei mix, had a long white rope tied around his neck that was soiled in blood and was covered with asphalt.
The grievously wounded dog had open wounds on his head, body, and legs and he was covered with dirt and asphalt. The injuries on the dog’s body are consistent with those which would result from being dragged by a vehicle at a high rate of speed.
On December 2, the wounded dog was humanely euthanized – his injuries too severe for him to be saved. The police are seeking the public’s assistance and are asking anyone with any information in this case to please contact the Surprise Police Department at 623.222.4000 or 623.222.TIPS (8477).
